What Does an AC Tune-Up Involve?

When you call in HVAC professional to tune up your AC, they’ll carry out the following essential tasks:

  • Check and tighten all electrical connections.
  • Check the condensate drain to make sure it’s not leaking, which can cause water damage and add humidity to your home’s air.
  • Lubricate all moving parts keeping your system working to optimum efficiency.
  • Clean the outdoor condensing coil and indoor evaporator coil. Dirty coils reduce the service life of A/C components, by not allowing efficient heat exchange.
  • Check refrigerant levels and top up where necessary to ensure smooth and reliable operation of the system. If the refrigerant level is low, the technician should check the system for leaks. Refrigerant should adjusted to meet precise manufacture recommendations.
  • Adjust and clean blower components to maintain proper airflow.

Your AC professional also will carry out a number of different checks to the system including checking over the controls and thermostat. He should be happy to give you details on air filter maintenance and changes, which you can and should do yourself to keep your AC working at optimum efficiency.
